A healthy male term neonate born by a normal vaginal delivery was referred with severe bilateral eyelid edema and erythema at birth. On evaluation he was found to have eyelid imbrication with floppy eyelids bilaterally. The patient was managed conservatively and showed complete recovery of symptoms and signs over a period of ten days. This rare clinical entity can be a cause of concern to parents and clinicians but can be satisfactorily managed by conservative measures. This is the fourth case of congenital combined eyelid imbrication (CEI) with congenital floppy eyelid syndrome (CFES) reported worldwide, to our knowledge.
